Lively Grove Mine
Lively Grove Mine is part of the $4 billion Prairie State Energy Campus near Marissa in Washington County, Illinois. The underground mine will supply about 6 million tons of high-sulfur coal annually to the 1,600-megawatt plant. The first 800-megawatt unit is slated for commercial operation in late 2011, and the second in the summer of 2012. Digging at the mine is expected to commence in 2011. A permit has been issued to Peabody Energy.
